Baby boy born in Chiswick police station car park named Bobby by grateful mum

A mother who gave birth in the car park of a west London police station has named her newborn baby Bobby as a thank you to the officers who rushed to her aid.

Pregnant Rebecca Fox was on her way home from hospital on June 22 after not going into labour when expected.

But during her journey home, Ms Fox began to have pains and told her mum Sandra, who was driving the car, to turn round and race back to the hospital.

As they drove through Chiswick, Ms Fox felt she needed to push and within a few minutes could feel the baby’s head.

Her mother Sandra pulled into Chiswick Police Station car park in Hounslow, stopped the car and began to yell for help.

​Jacky Brosnan, who works for the police, heard the shouting and saw Ms Fox in the car park. She alerted a police officer, Hammersmith and Fulham PC Holly Foran, and they rushed to help.

“I heard a lady outside in the car park shouting, so I looked out of the window and there was another younger woman in the car with her feet on the dashboard,” Ms Brosnan said.

“It looked like she might be having a baby,

“I ran down and grabbed a police officer who was walking up the stairs, we ran out. Within two minutes a baby boy was born.

“Fortunately, just at that moment, a doctor walked by and asked if all was okay.”

While the doctor checked the baby and Ms Fox over, Ms Brosnan went to the nearby shop to pick up some supplies.

Shortly afterwards, paramedics from the London Ambulance Service attended and took them to hospital.

Ms Brosnan added: “They were both so grateful to us. Rebecca said she was going to call the baby Bobby, how sweet after giving birth right outside our station. 

“It was a beautiful start to the morning.”

Baby Bobby will be the newest addition to Ms Fox’s family, joining older sister Marnie.

Last week firefighters helped deliver a baby boy in south east London after a mother expectedly gave birth in the back seat of a car, while in April staff at London Bridge delivered a baby at the station.
